New Delhi: Who is better, Mohammed Rafi or Kishore Kumar? This debate about the two legends is going on since many decades. One can find a Bollywood superstar without Mohammed Rafi singing for him but it's next to impossible to find a superstar who is not aided by Kishore Kumar in his pursuit.
Be it Rajesh Khanna or be it Amitabh Bachchan, Kishore Kumar remained the playback singer for every star. His duets with Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle become so acclaimed that they are still played at almost every occasion in Indian households. Not only this, Kishore's songs have been the first choice for remix.
Dharmendra is probably the only actor who survived the superstardom of Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan, that too with ease. However, a good part of his success was shared by Kishore Kumar, who come up with some fantastic songs for the macho-man.
Can an Indian music lover forget 'Pal pal dil ke paas' from 'Blackmail' or 'Ye dosti' from 'Sholay', in which Dharmendra personified Kishore Kumar's voice.
Here is a playlist of ten Dharmendra-Kishore Kumar songs that are still mesmerising the listeners.
